It's going to be really tough getting a 4k monitor and a system capable of running the games you plan on playing at 4k well within your budget.

Almost $200 over but you get the 4k monitor and a GTX 1070, which will let you play comfortably at 4k. Anything lower end than a 1070 isn't really going to be worth it. At that point, you'd be better sticking with the GTX 1070 and getting a cheaper monitor. Oh, and you can swap the Eclipse P400 case for an Eclipse P300 to save $20.

$1240 with the P300 instead of the P400. Nice 1440p monitor which you should be able to easily overclock between 96-120Hz. If you really need it cheaper than this, you'll have to drop down to 8GB RAM;
